Hussey Tower: Boston: Scheduled Ancient Monument

Below: Hussey Tower in 1815

In the early sixteenth-century King Henry VIII ordered this mediaeval brick tower to be slighted after the unsuccessful Lincolnshire rebellion. Since which time it has remained in the ownership of the Boston Borough Council.

Anderson and Glenn have been commissioned to prepare a schedule of works for the installation of a new roof and timber floors. Buildings archaeologist Dr Jonathan Clark, of the University of York, has undertaken a detailed analysis of the structure, which is being used to inform the work.
